Many of us in Queen Anne were glued to the television watching the 81st annual Academy Awards. Can anyone believe that Ron Howard has been a part of the Academy for the last 50 years and has had five films nominated for Best Picture? (Do you know them?) Or that Meryl Streep has received 15 Oscar nominations, and won twice. (She’s the most nominated actress ever.) And yes, Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner taking home 8 of its 10 nominations. WOW! Online coverage of the Academy Awards has never been better. Check out the winners’ list on www.Oscar.com and watch the scenes outside of the theater by clicking on www.ontheredcarpet.com.D
